Be Forward Wanderers coach Jack ‘Africa’ Chamangwana on Sunday played down chants of ‘Jack achoke!’ (Jack should go!) after the Nomads’ third successive TNM Super League draw on Saturday.
Civo United held the Nomads to a goalless draw at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre to drop to fourth position from third.
“I am not going to bow down to the calls. Of course, as supporters they expect their team to do well all the time, but it is just one of those things.
“It is frustrating to be dropping points at home, but we are still early into the season and hopefully we will pick up,” he said.
The Nomads legend also voiced out his frustration against the officiating personnel whom he accused of taking a soft approach on Civo players.
“Of course, in the first half, we were not good enough but come the second half, Civo resorted to frustrate us by faking injuries and as a result it affected our rhythm,” he said.
The Nomads general secretary Mike Butao said they have had a poor start to the season.
“We have played three of our four games so far against tough opposition—[Nyasa] Big Bullets, Silver Strikers and Civo United and we have not lost to any of these teams.
“And more importantly, we should have won all these games. So, we are optimistic going forward and therefore, the supporters should not panic.
“Civo spent half the time rolling on the ground to kill our tempo, that was very anti-football,” he said.
But Civo coach Milias Jegwe Pofera dismissed Wanderers claims that his charges faked injuries to kill time.
